Patriot League cancels fall sport season

Posted at 5:09 PM, Jul 13, 2020

The Patriot League will not play fall sports this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The conference made the announcement Monday, which includes championship and non-championship competition.

Decisions surrounding winter and spring sport competition will be made at a later date.

League officials said conditioning, strength training and other practice opportunities will be permitted if health and safety conditions support it.

Officials said Army and Navy may continue to engage in competitive opportunities as considered appropriate by their superintendents.

"Disappointed that we're not going to be playing patriot league but excited that we get to play army and then we're working on piecing together a good schedule for our team."

"Grateful that there's still going to be competitions. I mean that's something that we really appreciate our opportunity to play. And then maybe hopeful that they can put together something that looks like a patriot league season.

The Patriot League said it's committed to exploring creative approaches and alternatives to providing future competitive experiences to fall sport student-athletes, including the possibility of conducting fall sport competition and championships in the second semester.
